I hope Frank Shamrock smashes his face in. Lol, that is all I have to say. I don't like Nick Diaz, and I'm more than confident that Frank can take the fight to him.

Oh hell ya. Them diaz brothers are full blown dousch bags. Once he kicks the shit out of nick he should jump over the cage and start kicking the shit out of nate. That would be priceless.

Frank is at wrestlemania right now in the front row with mickey rourke, too bad nick isn't on jericho's side, that could have been a sweet tag fight.

Here is a clip from Five ounces this morning. The interview in itself is long, but it's pretty good if you got the time.

Quote:
Although Shamrock has always fought in weight classes heavier than Diaz is accustomed to, the pair have agreed to square off at a catchweight of 179 pounds which will see Shamrock dropping six pounds from his normal fighting weight, while Diaz will bulk up nine pounds past his normal fighting weight.

Neither man has a track record of taking part in lackluster bouts and the fight between the two is sure to be electrifying from the sound of the opening bell. The fact that both have a never say die attitude in the cage, and both have an in ability to take a step backwards during battle have all of the makings of a water cooler discussion worthy battle that will be talked about for some time to come.

Nick Diaz has long been the kind of fighter that you either love or hate, although most seem to just love to hate him, but Shamrock has tow entirely different opinions on the brash and talented brawler from Stockton, California. As a mixed martial artist, Diaz demands his respect.

“As a fighter Nick is a very skilled dude,” said Shamrock in an exclusive interview with FiveOuncesOfPain.com done in the days leading up to his highly anticipated bout with Diaz. “He’s well rounded with his stand up, and he’s well rounded on the ground. I certainly respect him as a fighter, I think he’s the real deal.”

Of course, Shamrock has a distinctively different opinion on the Cesar Gracie trained fighter’s antics away from the cage.

“As a personality, I think Nick has a long ways to go [laughs], to being a role model, or a leader, or a good representation for MMA, but you know, everyone has their own flavor,” explained Shamrock.

Diaz stayed true to his bad boy form at the press conference for the event when he greeted Shamrock with his trademark single finger salute during the pairs media staredown. Diaz has long been notorious for his out of the ring theatrics which are designed to get into his opponents head while Shamrock has been in the game long enough where there’s not going to be a whole lot his opponent can do to derail him from his game plan in the heat of the moment. If anything, the consummate professional with a talent for being able to sell his own fights looks at his controversial opponents pre-fight antics as a positive.

Man, that was a good article. I can't wait for this fight to happen. Is there a reason it's catch-weight...or did they just agree it would be better for both fighters?

The event is in San Jose and it's on Showtime.

So they took two of the biggest regional stars that were available. Catchweight was necessary between these two given their size difference.

It's a compelling fight.
